Ghanaian Hiplife artiste, Kwaw Kese, has taken issue with Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia‘s recent analogy likening his role in the government to that of a “driver’s mate.”
Dr. Bawumia made this comparison during his inaugural speech as the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), outlining his vision for Ghana at the UPSA auditorium in Accra on February 7, 2024.
“As Vice-President, I am like a driver’s mate. But if, by the Grace of God, you make me President, I will be in the driver’s seat with constitutionally mandated authority to pursue my vision and my priorities,” Bawumia stated.
Challenging the analogy, Kwaw Kese, whose real name is Emmanuel Kofi Botwe, expressed his concerns in a post on X on February 9.
In his statement, Kwaw Kese called attention to Dr. Bawumia’s significant positions, including Vice President and head of the Economic Management Team, within the ruling party NPP.
As a native of Agona Swedru, Kwaw Kese called on the Vice President to justify his performance in the government and clarify whether the shortcomings should be attributed to his leadership.
“You’re the vice president of Ghana, Head of the Economic Management Team, And a full member of the ruling party NPP. As a local Ghana man from Agona SWEDRU, can you convince me if the failure of this government is not your failure?” he questioned.
